4 stars Waters taking final control over band!

This is the beginning of the string of FLOYD albums with Waters' attitude "Pink Floyd - that's me!", which ends with controversial "The Final Cut" in 1983 and his departure for solo career. "Animals" was still an excellent work with dark lyrics and top-notch music production. Apart from omni-present Waters, Gilmour also had a prominent role especially co-writing "Dogs" one of true epic gems of FLOYD catalogue, with more than chilling guitar work. Another highlight is "Sheep" with strong pulsating bass line and wonderful Wright's synths - very horror-filled ambience and hints of TANGERINE DREAM better moments of the same era. Recommended to all prog fans, while I would advise novices to start FLOYD voyage elsewhere first.
